Gate 7 (Chapters 0–1)

Myouhou modor­i­dori~! Weary due to the com­plete mess of an end­ing TRC had (and still weary to fin­ish up ×××HOLiC because of it), I final­ly got around to read­ing CLAM­P’s lat­est series, Gate 7! I mean, Koba­to was still very good, in my opin­ion, so I haven’t lost hope in CLAMP. As always, CLAMP man­ages […]

Hyouka 15

After a few episodes of fes­ti­val fun, the mys­tery hov­er­ing below the noses of our beloved Clas­sics Club final­ly shows itself (well, it already did, but now they actu­al­ly give a damn about it lol). This is real­ly the type of episode of Hyou­ka that I enjoy watch­ing and I’d say this was one of […]

Tari Tari 04 & 05

TRANSLATION: AWESOME ANIME I’m REALLY enjoy­ing this ani­me as of now. The com­e­dy scenes are gen­uine­ly fun­ny, so far there has­n’t been an episode that missed out on some sort of devel­op­ment, and over­all it’s look­ing up to be fur­ther proof that the slice-of-life genre in ani­me does­n’t have to delve into super­nat­ur­al ele­ments or […]

RE: The roots of our fandom

Yume­ka of Mainichi Ani­me Yume wrote an arti­cle where she harkened back to her child­hood and exam­ined the ori­gins of when her love of ani­me first began and, of course, why it still per­sists in her heart today. She asked her read­ers if they could trace any instances of ear­ly “ner­dom” with­in their child­hoods that […]

Noizi Itou 【Live Drawing】

As an anime/manga fan-artist, I keep myself updat­ed on Wacom’s YouTube chan­nel, a com­pa­ny which pro­duces high-qual­i­­ty graph­ics tablets (of which I do not own, ARGH), and every so often they upload a video show­cas­ing well-known artists using their tablets such as the Cin­tiq 24HD. For fans of The Melan­choly of Haruhi Suzu­miya, Shaku­gan no […]

Cardcaptor Sakura 【HD Rewatch】 08

RAITEI SHOURAI! Final­ly! Episode 8 is when the series real­ly starts to spice things up with the intro­duc­tion of our token male tsun­dere,  Syao­ran Li. 李 小狼, Li Xiaolang. Known as “lit­tle pup­py” to his fan­girls (and Saku­ra in my head canon), and a pret­ty cool dude to the male fans.  He starts off pro­vid­ing […]

Sword Art Online: Likes and Dislikes (First Impressions)

Now that I’ve final­ly got around to start­ing up Sword Art Online (the first three episodes), I final­ly gath­ered enough ini­tial feel­ings about this ani­me in order to write a thor­ough impres­sion on it. I have to be hon­est here. The only oth­er ani­me series about “play­ing an online game” that I ever real­ly liked […]

Very first impression of Joshiraku…

WHY CAN“T I GET THE ENDING THEME OUT OF MY HEAD? Seri­ous­ly, I like the first two episodes so far, but I doubt the actu­al con­tent will con­tain any­thing that will stick to my head longer than the flip­pin’ end­ing theme. If the Momoiro Clover Z girls had the desire to con­trol the minds of […]
